From all the NPC hints it feels like there's probably a 2nd ending where you use the big white door to go back to beginning, is there?
At some point between entering the final area and talking to the bear the bridge thing to the final area opened up again so I'm unable to get back to the other areas. I don't really feel like restarting from scratch straight away if there's not more content for me to find.
This was really good! Just had a lovely rainy afternoon with it. Also I cracked up at the "Watch out for ghouls." sign, but then I kept running into them anyway and saying to myself "watch out for ghouls!" Beautiful environments, the size and detail of the guardians was stark and wonderous, pleasant music... a good place to get lost for a while :)
The game is fun and enjoyable, it is short and it can last no more than 1 hour. Staying away about the hitboxes such as spiders or the weird movement that the game has, i really liked it!
I could say that some things like having the power of respawning and not resetting the room so you can basically destroy bosses regardless of you dying, like the Big Spider, you can just hold down Z and wait for their death. Also, i think i skipped a Guardian. There are like 2-3 walls with eyes in the game, and one of them leaded me to a water-like place, but i got back to check some other paths and ended up with the bear. Basically i skipped the whole area and maybe a power up.
Some things aren't clear, like, the guy that sees your future with jewels, i used it like 3 times, got strenght twice and judgement. I don't know if it really helped.
The guardians i talked to were the frog, bat, snail, bunny, and bear (I think i talked to another one but to be honest, i forgot) So yeah i think i skipped some of the content.
